Turkish troops, weapons head toward Iraq
By Volkan Sarisakal - Associated Press Writer
SIRNAK, Turkey - Dozens of Turkish military vehicles loaded with soldiers and heavy weapons rumbled toward the Iraq border on Monday after an ambush by guerrilla Kurds that left eight soldiers missing and killed 12.
Iraq's president said the rebels would announce a cease-fire later in the day.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he told Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in a telephone conversation on Sunday night that Turkey expected "speedy steps from the U.S." in cracking down on Kurdish rebels and that Rice, who called the Turkish leader, asked "for a few days" from him.
[US State Department spokesman. Sean] McCormack did not dispute the account of the conversation but declined to comment on what Rice had meant by asking for "a few days."
